“Famous for their pesto”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Quainly charming and packed eatery. They are famous for their tri-tip and pesto. It is a Stockton landmark and if you go plan to wait a bit to get a table. Good food.

“Best steak house”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Every single thing on their menu is superb! I love the BBQ chicken and ribs combo. Very generous portions. Also love the Mushroom bowl which is an appetizer but if you don't share with at least two people, you won't have room for your entree!

“Support local buisness...food was great!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We came from out of town and came upon this gem out in the middle of no where. Food was great, steak, ribs and bread pudding. Would do it again!

“Loud but Good”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Definitely a dive vibe but classy service and clean tables. The House Made Bar-B-Que Sauce was delicious! The waiter was helpful and friendly. We had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated because the place was packed. The bar was crowded too. The decor is kitchy and sports oriented with dollar bills stapled to the ceiling. The food was really good but not Five Star, though the sauce was five star in my opinion- you just shouldn't have to count on the sauce. The music was fun but made talking difficult. And it was a bit dark in the parking lot when we came out so pack a flashlight if you park at the far end.

“Noisy but good”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Waterloo is an institution around here. The menu is limited, but the food is great. It's not a large place, it's usually pretty crowded & noisy, but well worth going for the food.
